Lindsay Lohan Gets Face Full of Flour

Written by PETA | November 14, 2008

Lindsay Lohan’s tan turned noticeably paler tonight after an anti-fur activist showered her with flour at a nightclub in Paris. Lindsay was on her way into the VIP room on the Champs-Elysées just after 1 a.m. early Saturday when she had an entire bag of flour dumped over her head by a French fur foe who shouted, “Lindsay Lohan—fur hag!” Lohan has enraged animal lovers by appearing in at least two different fur coats in recent days, despite PETA’s repeated pleas that she consider how animals suffer for every fur garment and stop wearing their skins. You can check out the pics from X17 here.

When Lindsay was named to PETA’s annual Worst-Dressed List earlier this year, her entry read: “I Know Who Killed Me isn’t just the title of Lindsay Lohan’s latest bomb, it’s the cry of the animals snuffed out so that this ‘mean girl’ can pose in their pelts. Lindsay, there’s no road to recovery for the foxes who are anally electrocuted so that you can look skanky.” She was also in the public eye last winter for allegedly stealing a $10,000 fur coat from a fellow partygoer.

Pledge to go fur-free at

PETA Europe’s Robbie LeBlanc had this to say about Lindsay’s run in with the French flour-tossing fur foe: “There is nothing remotely ‘fashionable’ about the torture and death of animals killed for fur. Lindsay Lohan might be able to ignore images of bloody animals skinned alive for their pelts, but we hope a dash of flour will help her rise to the occasion and forsake fur once and for all.”

So come on Lindsay, drop the fur for good.

    Protest is fine but assault is assault. If someone threw flour on me I might accidentally assume it’s anthrax and defend myself most aggressively… Or is PETA the only group allowed to be aggressive? Sauce for the goose is sauce for the gander. Keep it sane everyone.. Too much to ask? I thought so.

  • sonya says:

    Attacking someone’s pride is often more destructive than attacking their person. Dumping a bag of flour on Miss Lohan is more likely to make her defensiveprotective of her behaviors than it is to make her see “the errors of her ways”. Positive reinforcement works while negative reinforcement often causes an aggressive response. This incident also makes the person throwing the bag of flour look foolish and juvenile. If PETA members really desire to help change Miss Lohan’s behavior maybe they should praise her when she is photographed in coats made from synthetic fibers applauding her “efforts to change”.

  • Jasmine says:

    It’s acts like these that makes me and other people not want to join Peta. I think discussing issues in a calm and reasonable matter would get people like Lindsay to realize what they’re doing is wrong. Getting flour in your face doesn’t let you know that fur coats are the result of animal torture. Please just think about that Peta.

  • sasha says:

    I also agree with Cate. Will you please put pictures on her or atleast a video???????

  • lynda downie says:

    Flour power!

  • Paola says:

    What kind of person is she?? for people like her animals are still slaughtered. Her wealth doesn’t justify her actions!! Animal LiBeRaTiOn Now!!!

  • Debbie says:

    I think she is just milking this for attention.

  • debbie says:

    Just another spoiled overindulged attention grabbing hollywood who is milking this for all it is worth. I think she is wearing the furs to get more media coverage and pose controversy. I wish she would just go away.

  • heather says:

    Come on guys we are all here for the same reason right? To help animals. We are not here to bash Lindsay. I think it is horrible that she wears fur. Horrible that anyone does. I am so grateful for all that PETA does the world isn’t going to change on its own. But I have to disagree with the flour. It does give PETA a bad rap. I am really glad it wasn’t ketchup or paint though not to protect Lindsay but why ruin a fur coat you are only disrespecting the animals that suffered! Those beautiful innocent animals already died in vain please don’t give these people an excuse to go out and buy another coat! Education is certainly the way to go. I know not everyone will listen but with persistence we can change the world. Thank you so much PETA for the many horrors you guys face and the time you put into helping animals and creating awareness. I will continue to support you and do everything I can to help animals.

  • Sarah says:

    I agree with Cate…. I just watched the interview with Kristen Johnston about the horrible life of horses who pull the carriages in NYC… when I was in NYC in 2001 I saw these horses and I thought it was awesome to see these beautiful animals on the streets of a city… I have always been an animal lover… but I didn’t have enough knowlegde back then to know how they were being treated after hours… KNOWLEDGE is POWER.. I say keep sending these celebrities letters and videos to show them the cruelty that is inflicted onto these animals to make you a Fur coat or scarf…I get angry with the things I read and the more I learn but I don’t think you should be following people out in the streets throwing things on them! All they are going to do then is rebel more against us!! You can be fashonable with your millions on other articles of clothing… Teach and maybe they will learn!!

  • Guilherme says:

    Please continue throwing things at these people. They need to wake up from their fantasy realities!

  • Teresa says:

    I agree with Alex she got lots of attention which she didn’t deserve but also to say Peta is bad is no good FOR ALL PETA HAS DONE AND IS DOING to stand for animals NOBODY CAN THROW THE RESPONSABILITY OF A SINGLE PERSON ACTION ON THE WHOLE ORGANIZATION that since yeeeaaars works hard to support animals’ freedom to live! This has just been the emotional breakout of a Peta member ok what to do after all Lohan maybe needs to be waken up looking at her life….She was probably happy for all the attention she got! For free!! But don’t blame PETA that’s not serious!! Peta is a great organization and thanks God IT’S A REALITY AND EXISTS!! And I’m not even a Peta member! Yet…

  • Sabrina says:

    Hoorah for the person that flour bombed her. I thought it was hilarious. I am so sick of hearing about how skinny she is or about her drug rehab. Maybe she will eventually starve herself or overdose so we don’t have to keep hearing about what a loser she is. She is a skank!

  • Joshua Parker says:

    How ’bout if someone teaches a lesson and tells that selfish spoiled brat to inject some cooking oil in her self. It totally ruins the face she’ll look hideous! So anyone think they could try and trick her? 3 Please?

  • Jada says:

    I cant see how anyone could wear fur. The pain these poor animals have to go through just so that people can wear their fur. Its painful for animal lovers so see that. It hurts my heart.

  • Cherry Hanson says:

    Too rich too much of everything too pampered out of touch out of friends. Another cookie cutter silly pretty girl with no conscience and no values. She was lucky it was only flour Cherry

  • Fabien Chouinard says:

    The world is very sick… Poor us and poor animals.

  • Mark says:

    How the hell do people tell the difference between real and fake fur anyway? I follow Lindsay’s career and I doubt she was wearing real fur.

  • Jae says:

    Fk these celebrities that think just because they are famous they dont give a shit about where their clothes comes from. I just watched the video above and cried so hard… how could people be soooo cruel to animals. They are helpless and cannot defend themselves. Thanks to Peta and all the people out there that choose to go fur free and vegetarian for you are the people that make this world beautiful. Damn these people and their greed and inability to see the bigger picture. Thanks Peta. You do a fantastic job. Keep it up. Lets hope the world changes for the better soon.

  • bill switlock says:

    thanks for PETA!

  • Alex says:

    Two undenyable facts someone attacked Lohan with a bag of flour yes it’s an attack if you wait for someone to arrive and deliberatly throw flour at herhim Lohan got free publicity… I think that despite the fact that she deserve it or not by supporting this PETA creates a negative imagine of the organization and gives free publicty to someone who doesn’t deserve it. Please stand up for the animal rights the right way!!!


    Where was that skinning video taken? Somebody do something

  • Millicent Goti says:

    Hey! That was great. Can I see the picture? You make my night. We need more flour for her.

  • animals 4 ever says:

    Why not send lindsay to jail!? What gives her the right to steal an animal’s coat?!?! I think that the person was right ot throw powder on her! Animals were put on the earth to be free not to be worn by humans.

  • 4 the Animals says:

    Well people get mad and do things all the time. Does it mean it’s right? No but she wasn’t injured or anything bad. There are more mature ways to get points across though. Educating everyone with showing videos passing out information photos for people to see it for themselves. I realize people turn a blind eye and pretend it’s not real but at least PETA can try in an informational way to get their good points across.

  • Annie Greiffenberg says:

    Money is no excuse for ignorance

  • Lyndsey Jones says:

    I don’t see how throwing flour on Lindsay Lohan hurt her it wasn’t a painful act what happened to the animals she’s wearing with them being skinned alive is a painful act. I liked Lindsay Lohan but the girl is such an idiot! Peta you need to send her more letters MAYBE put some pictures on the letters so it’s easier for her. She probably can’t read that’s why she’s not getting the message!

  • Shari says:

    Just remember Hollywood is a tool of the Illuminati to keep the ‘sheeple’ distracted while THEY steal your money AND liberties RIGHT OUT from under you!! WAKE UP PEOPLE!!

  • Shari says:

    Like I ALWAYS say people what goes around COMES around and FRIENDS sadly it’s coming around now! Turn On Tune In and WAKE UP!! http://WWW.INFOWARS.COM RESIST THEIR NEW WORLD ORDER http://WWW.GRASSFIRE.ORG WE NEED YA ‘ PEACE LOVE TRUTH

  • lindsay says:

    people people! how can you feel bad for lohan? she got flour dumped on her boohoo! Animals who live in extreme confinement and get brutally murdered now thats who you need to feel bad for. I bet she felt pretty stupid after this!

  • Brad says:

    It isn’t like Linsay doesn’t know about the cruelty she is inflicting on animals unless she has completely ignored thousands of pleas for her to stop. She deserves more that flour poured on her. She deserves to have her skin ripped from her while she is alive.

  • Hana says:

    I must agree with Jason. What’s wrong you people? It’s wrong to hurt someone even if they don’t care about animals like a skank like lohan but this didn’t really hurt her. She just got covered in flour and looked stupid! I’m pretty sure the flour whased away when she took a bath.

  • lisa says:

    a little humiliation.. what’s so bad about that? It’s people who are in the public eye that flaunt and wear real fur that are the worst because they generate so much publicity as if to say.. ‘it’s okay to wear real fur’.. Oh no.. it AIN’T.. and the brave parisian who pelted her with only a bag of flour .. made her viewpoint well and truly known.. good for her!!

  • Kelly says:

    LOL ! Skanks will never learn sadly.

  • Brittany says:

    This is really sad! I mean yes it’s bad that she wears furs but it’s so not right to throw flour or anything for that matter at another human being. This just shows that PETA can be just as big an animal and the animals they try to protect. Go about it another way!

  • Matt says:

    I have seen this sort of actions before and they did nothing to change my point of view as it did watching a video of an animal being skinned alive and reading about the process that goes behind selling any kind of meat in a super market. The right solution is to inform people rather than throwing things at them. PETA is getting a bad rep where many people think that its members are nothing but crazy irrational people so the message doesn’t get across when people don’t respect the ones that are sending the message in the first place. Another thing is that the people targeted for this kind of actions are not the ones that skin the animals but a few celebrities because that will get the media attention. I read some of the posts and people seem to enjoy what happened mainly because they dislike Lindsay Lohan as a person for reasons other than wearing fur and not because they think that the flour attack will have a positive effect on her or other people. Is like some posters were glad that she wore the fur to have an excuse to throw something at her face. PETA shouldn’t be about condoning hate actions against a few chosen people who are not even the cause of the problem. Focus on the real problem and be the bigger person and avoid childish approaches that do nothing but give immediate pleasure but are counter productive to the main goal.

  • ghazal tajalli says:

    Some of you people commenting here are on the wrong website. Lohan didn’t even get a fraction of what she deserves!! Attacks like this are never first on the agenda of helping animals but when animal abuse supporters like her ignore our pleas and letters then this is what it comes down to. I fully support everything PETA does and have no pity for her but for the millions of animals who are killed in unspeakable ways for their fur.And if you still dont get it take the time to watch a single fur video and it will change your mind. Until every cage is empty………..

  • Resolving hate w/ hate?? says:

    I totally agree with Aneliese. Okay so how is attacking Lindsay with flour going to change her mind on wearing fur? She dusted her self off and continued to strut her onsomble. Fighting hate with hate is not going to work. Eductaion is the key not violence.

  • Rebekah says:

    Fur is ugly anyway!

  • pd says:

    She’s a skank so it doesn’t surprise me she wears fur. Too bad it wasn’t red dye. She’s too stupid to change.

  • Robbin says:

    I’m not a member of PETA but I fully sponsor them. I would love to see Lindsay’s flour covered head and clothes. I don’t like her! Where are the pics!?
